Kiki Astra Creel, the Imperial Duchess of Sheba
July 2, 1986-April 27, 2000My Dearest Kiki--
Where did we come from?
They say, "Life is too short,"
I used to be frightened of dying
If I die tomorrow I'd be all right
Move on, be brave
--Dream theater, "The Spirit Carries on"
They say memories are golden,
Maybe for twelve or fourteen years, maybe two or three
But will you, 'till I call her back, take care of her for me?
She'll bring her charms to gladden you and should her stay be brief,
You'll always have her memories as solace for your grief.
I cannot promise she will stay, since all from earth return,
But there are lessons taught below I want My kitty to learn.
I've looked the whole world in search of teachers true
And from the fold that crowds life's land, I have chosen you.
Now, will you give her all your love, Nor think the labor vain,
Nor hate me when I come to take her home again?
I fancied that I heard them say, "Dear Lord Thy Will Be Done,
For all the joys this Kitty brings, the risk of grief we'll run.
We'll shelter her with tenderness, we'll love her while we may,
And for the happiness we'll know, we'll forever grateful stay.
But should You call her back much sooner than we've planned,
We'll brave the bitter loss that comes, and try to understand.
If, by our love, we've managed, your wishes to achieve
The memory of her we loved, will help us as we grieve.
When our faithful bundle departs this world of strife,
We'll have yet another kitten, and love her all her life."
